Bill Cosby Bet Hundreds of Thousands Through Illegal Bookies, Claims Son of Mafia Godfather

Bill Cosby was an avid sports bettor who squandered hundreds of 1000s of dollars betting on the Miami Dolphins in the eighties, according to Chris Colombo, a mafia scion and youngest son of former Mob boss Joseph Colombo.

Bill Cosby lost $400,000 wagering on the Miami Dolphins in the mid-eightes, during the height of their Cosby Show fame, according to Chris Colombo. The wagers were put by Cosby’s ‘fixer’ Frank Scotti, he alleges.

We agree totally that this isn’t always the most allegation that is heinous at the once-beloved comedian recently, and we also concede Colombo, whom spent a year in prison for running a multi-million-dollar illegal bookmaking operation, may not be the many trustworthy source in town.

Still, if anyone would find out about illegal bookmaking in New York in the eighties, it may be him. Colombo insists that, at the height of his Cosby Show popularity, ‘Dr Huxtable’ had been regularly wagering $5,000 a game.

He additionally lost a $20,000 bet on the 1985 Super Bowl XIX, when the San Francisco 49ers thrashed the Dolphins 38-16, claims Colombo.

Cosby’s ‘Fixer’

The Mafia guy states that while he would not personally handle the wagers (because that could have been illegal!), he ‘had knowledge’ of them and estimates Cosby lost around $400,000 over several years.

As Cosby might state, zip-zop-zoobity-bop!
